‘Free Guy’ Nominated for Two Hollywood Critics Association Film Awards


The Hollywood Critics Association Film Awards nominations are out, and the hit movie from this summer Free Guy starring Ryan Reynolds has received two nominations.

Free Guy is nominated for the following categories:

  • Best Visual Effects
  • Best Comedy or Musical

Directed by Shawn Levy, Free Guy released August 13, 2021 and immediately won the hearts of audiences. Free Guy follows video-game NPC bank teller, Guy (Ryan Reynolds) who develops free-will due to his artificial intelligence programming after meeting the love of his life, Molotov Girl (Jodie Comer). There are a couple of problems though: Molotov Girl is actually Millie, a real-world person and Free City, the game in which Guy exists, is at risk of being destroyed. Guy and Millie have to go against the clock as they are hunted by Antoine (Taika Waititi) and anything the video game giant can throw at them, including a CGI’d up Reynolds as Dude.

The fifth annual HCA Film Awards will take place at 4 p.m. PT on January 8, 2022 from the Avalon Hollywood.
